Re: Last Boat- Time to look at the end game Cruising Boat

Have you looked at a Pacific Seacraft 40/44?

They seem to meet most of your requirements - mast height less 63 feeet, than minimal wood trim topside, are very nicely finished below, skeg hung rudder, lead keel, propane locker for two tanks etc. Draft is 6.1 and 6.3 feet respectively, a little over your spec.

It is also a rock solid and pretty boat. Rock solid and pretty boats go a long way towards getting and keeping the Admiral on board.

They seem to do better offshore than their round the buoys PHRF seems to indicate. SV Valis, Pacific Seacraft 44 out of San Fransico (VALIS) has a good record in the Pacific Cup.

Disclaimer: I have not been on a Pacific Seacraft 40/44 but I can attest to the thoughtfullness of the design and the quality of the build of a Pacific Seacraft 34.
